Tombstone Tuesday: Mt. Hope Cemetery
It turns out that Mathias Leonard Loucks and his wife Harriet Sophia (Vaux) Loucks are indeed buried in the Mt. Hope Cemetery in San Diego, California. Sadly, their son, Warren Tice Loucks was not – or at least, I haven’t found him there yet. The confusion came when the cemetery map I was sent had his name in the legend. Upon closer look it appears that Warren was the purchaser of the plots for his parents.
A Find-A-Grave contributor went out to search for the graves and was successful. Mathias and Harriet are located near the base of a large tree. Unfortunately, neither have a headstone nor any markers. The contributor was kind enough to do some digging to see whether anything had been buried, but to no avail.
